From Deborah Harkness FB page:
SHADOW OF NIGHT real-time reading, 11 March 1591: “After we’d lived out of saddlebags and a single shared trunk for weeks, our belongings had arrived three days after we did at the tall, narrow house perched on the steep avenue leading to Prague Castle known as Sporrengasse. Our German neighbors presumably dubbed it Spur Street because that was the only way you could persuade a horse to make the climb.”
This is the house in Prague, in the Mala Strana district on a steep street leading to the castle, that was the inspiration for Diana and Matthew’s house.
